    "We moved from Coles Ferry 2 yrs ago due to not being in district anymore and I have not been pleased with the school. We miss Coles Ferry. I have been fairly pleased with the teachers. My son has had issues from the principle that I feel were unfair at times. He is very hyper at times and I understand that can be hard to handle at times, but the principle has proven to me twice that she is not there for my child. I have witnessed more than one occasion of her not being able to handle herself in a professional manner. I have not cared for her since, so hard to trust in this school. I cannot wait to move to another school."

    "My Daughter started Kindergarten at Byars Dowdy this year. I have to say I was very apprehensive about her going to School as we had some safety issues at a Christian Mother's Day Out program the summer before. My husband and I have been extremely pleased with her progress. We absolutely love her teacher as she has went above and beyond to ensure the students are learning and getting the attention they deserve and need. I love that the children are not just 'shuffled' through the system. The school offers a well rounded curriculum in which my daughter enjoys the arts, p.e., Ksmart, as well as learning in the classroom EVERY DAY! I love this school and so does our little girl. Thanks Byars Dowdy for making our daughter's first year of school so wonderful and setting my mind at ease!"

    "This is the first year my children have attended Byars Dowdy. We had been at another elementary school in Lebanon that was suppose to be 'top notch'. I was a little nervous about moving my children to a new school after we moved. However, the staff and teachers have made my whole family feel welcome. They always have smiling faces and kind words. I have also found that my children are learning more and challenged more than at the previous 'top notch' school. We love Byars!!"

    "I had 2 children go through this school. Most of the teachers are okay to pretty good, however with everyone being soooo concerned about 'No Child Left Behind', it seems that the intelligent ones do get 'left behind' in that they are not challenged and become bored very easily. If one of these children slacks due to boredom, they are pointed out in front of peers. What good does that do? None, it just causes more loss of interest and feeling bad because they are already teased for being smart. Why not put children who score in the same range on TCAPs in the same class? The slower ones wouldn't feel bad or dumb and the smarter kids would challenge each other to learn, not get bored and give up on school at such an early age......"

    "My granddaughter attends Byars Dowdy. She is now in the 3rd grade and I have been very pleased with her teachers and the staff at Byars Dowdy. They get the education they need in today's world, but the school still offers the warm and coze atmosphere of a small town school. Thanks to everyone, and a Very Merry Christmas!"
